The Spanish entry Quédate Conmigo (Stay With Me)

She now embraces with enthusiasm the chance to represent Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest in Baku with the modern pop ballad Quedate Conmigo (Stay With Me) written by Antonio Sánchez, Thomas G:son and Erik Bernholm.
A delightful and lively modern pop ballad, Stay With Me was written by one Spanish and two Swedish authors, who have worked on many previous hits and whose combination favours the most international side of Spanish pop making it a ballad with an original structure that goes in crescendo to the final climax. Three minutes of pure power-pop with an exuberant melody and effective lyrics, so that European audiences may understand some of these Spanish words.
Stay With Me is a catchy melody with universal lyrics that makes a plea to the loved one to stay by our side, once we have realized how little we have done to keep that love flame burning bright.

Lyrics of Quédate Conmigo (Stay With Me)

Spanish (Original)

QUÉDATE CONMIGO - STAY WITH ME:
Perdón si no supe decir Que lo eras todo para mí Perdón por el dolor
Perdona cada lágrima Yo sé que no merezco más Pero si no te tengo aquí No sé vivir
Quédate Conmigo No te vayas
Perdóname Si no supe amarte, amor No era mío el corazón Quédate Conmigo Quédate Conmigo Si no estás no sale el sol
Ya no hay recuerdos del ayer Sólo las horas en tu piel Amándote
Quédate Conmigo No te vayas
Perdóname Si no supe amarte, amor No era mío el corazón Quédate Conmigo Quédate Conmigo Si no estás no sale el sol
Y ahora que te veo marchar Sé que no te voy a olvidar...

English

Forgive me for the unbroken silence For not realizing you were my all Forgive me if I hurt you
Forgive me for every tear I brought into your eyes I’m not worthy of them But the one thing I know now Is that I can’t live Without you near me
Stay with me Don’t go
Please forgive me If I couldn’t love you the way you deserved My heart didn’t belong to me Stay with me Stay with me When shadows fall, I’ll raise the sun
My memories are gone Except for those I have of you Touching your skin Loving you
Stay with me Don’t go
Please forgive me If I couldn’t love you the way you deserved My heart didn’t belong to me Stay with me Stay with me When shadows fall, I’ll raise the sun
And now I see you walk away I beg you, stay for one more day

French

RESTE AVEC MOI:
Pardonne-moi tous les silences Les marques de trop d'indifférence Pardonne la souffrance
Pardonne-moi tous les sanglots Mais si tu pars loin de ces eaux Sans pouvoir effleurer ta peau A quoi bon vivre
Reste et ne t'en va pas Je t'en supplie
Pardonne-moi, Si je n'ai pas su t'aimer mon amour, Mon cœur ne m'appartenait plus, Reste avec moi, Reste avec moi, Sans toi je suis à mauvais port
S'effacent les traces du passé Seules restent les images de nos corps enlacés Reste et ne t'en va pas, Je t'en supplie
Pardonne-moi, Si je n'ai pas su t'aimer mon amour, Mon cœur ne m'appartenait plus, Reste avec moi, Reste avec moi, Sans toi je suis à mauvais port
Comment refaire le voyage Si tu vogues vers d'autres rivages
